    1. This year I'm doing a Reading Challenge; so I have 26 books with specific subjects that I need to read.Book 14:A book with a character with your first nameInitially I thought finding a book with a character with my first name would be difficult, but when then my research prove me so wrong that I actually could pick and choose.Picking Someone Else's Skin was really an excellent choice!I fell right into the story. 'DI Rome, slayer of dragons.'I like the complexity of the characters; especially DI [...]

    2. WHOA just finished reading SOMEONE ELSE"S Skin by Sarah Hilary & i must say i adored this book It took me on a journey that was enjoyable & had disturbing content.I Thought DI Marnie Rome was one tough nut who would always come to the right conclusion i also had a connection to DS Noah Jake was likable & a very strong character.Sarah Hilary is a very accomplished author with such subjects as female genital mutilation Spousal abuse & racism issues in one read which many authors wo [...]

Brilliantly imagined, totally convincing and utterly compelling you [...]

    4. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with this new crime novel, after all it takes something quite spectacular to live up to the billing ‘the crime debut of the year,’ especially in February!To begin with we have the DI, Marnie Rome who has a troubled past. So far so normal for a crime novel, but in her case her back story include murdered parents which has left her determined to succeed in her job, although her personal life seems a little bleak. Her partner is DS Noah Jake, a Jamaican and [...]

    5. This book has not yet been released. It’s release date is 27th February 2014. I was lucky enough to get a proof copy in my Theakstons crime goody bag at Harrogate last weekend. It was the first book I picked out of the pile of books I brought home and I’m so glad it was. I’m just sorry that I’ve finished it now and I have to wait so long for DI Marnie Rome book two.Hilary’s style is enthralling. She captures you in the scene and holds you there effortlessly. Her words flow and her char [...]

    6. Did enjoy the start of this book did enjoy Marnie Rome character,would give it 3.5 I think it dragged on in parts of this book it could of been shorter but still would read the next book in this series.

    7. There are so many good reviews of this book and I've gushed about Sarah Hilary elsewhere, so I'm just going to say that if you like crime but you haven't read this series, you're missing out.

    8. Well, well…now I know what all the fuss is about. I've been reading some great reviews for Sarah Hillary’s debit novel and was excited to see if it lived up to the hype. Thankfully it certainly ticked all the boxes, so much so that I am already reading book 2. DI Marnie Rome (FABULOUS lead characters name I think) is working alongside DS Noah Jake and their new case involves a woman who is seeking solace at a refuge after being brutally attacked by her own family. When they arrive at the ref [...]

    9. Once in a while I come across a writer and/or book that makes me sit up and take notice. This happened with Someone Else’s Skin – not only has Sarah Hilary produced an action-packed, fast-paced crime novel but it is one of the best-written ones I’ve read recently. The quality of the narrative is superb. Language and character development is pitch perfect and this was a book I really couldn’t put down.I won’t discuss the plot – as I am sure other reviewers have done – and so no spoi [...]

    10. This is a very good read, introducing a new detective pair DI Marnie Rome and DS Noah Jake.The story starts when the due visit a battered women’s refuge to try and persuade one of the residents to act as witness in a current case but they walk in on a very dramatic, scary situation. I don’t want to say any more about the plot, so as not to spoil the read for someone else, but suffice to say that it centres around the theme of domestic violence, manipulation and control. Some way into the boo [...]

    11. Review: Someone Else's Skin by Sarah Hilary Someone Else's Skin is the 'crime debut of the year', claims the back cover of Sarah Hilary's first novel. Big words to live up to indeed. Detective Inspector Marnie Rome is brilliant at her job and a rising star in the police ranks. She has also had to fight her way back following the murder of her parents. Marnie is dependable and fierce, if only on the surface. There are secrets swirling beneath the surface that Marnie keeps firmly to herself. But [...]

    12. When DI Marnie Rome and her colleague, DS Noah Jake, are asked to attend a woman’s refuge to try and persuade a victim of domestic abuse to give evidence against her brother - the main suspect in another vicious crime, what they originally believed would be a routine visit turns into something far more complex. They arrive at the scene to find the husband of one of the women lying on the floor, the apparent victim of a stabbing. During their investigation for the truth, they have to work their [...]

    13. Enjoyed my introduction to Marnie Rome, courtesy of Tracy at TBC's recommendation for the reading . This was well written and well plotted if a little dark and disturbing at times. A bit too gritty and hard to read in places but it added to the strength and impact of the story. Another senior police woman fighting demons to add to my other favourites and I will be looking for the next book shortly! Thanks again to Tracy for the recommendation.

    14. I received a copy of this book from Bookbridgr in return for an honest reviewDetective Inspector Marnie Rome has seen plenty of murder and mayhem in her life, both professionally and personally. When she is assigned a case involving an honour based crime, it brings more than she had bargained for. Herself and DS Noah Jake find themselves at the centre of an attempted murder in a women's refuge. Someone is not telling the truth and the witnesses are all abused women with plenty of experience at k [...]

    15. This is an amazing novel that has justifiably deserved the great reviews and recognition it has received. In part that is due to the originality of the police investigation, the subject matter and the thrilling unsettling writing. It is a well crafted story about manipulation and control, mostly seen through domestic abuse. What makes it stand out is the various themes it tackles in this seldom reported and written about aspect of power in relationships. So the novel covers violence in Africa, a [...]

    16. I rate this at 3.5 stars. Detective Inspector Marnie Rome and Detective Sergeant Noah Jake are investigating a crime and visiting a women's refuge to interview one of the residents. What they discover when they arrive is a man lying seriously injured on the floor, he's been stabbed and is the husband of one of the women. Suddenly Marnie and Noah are in charge of a complex investigation and one that soon spirals out of control.As well as a couple of storylines concerning the refuge there is also [...]

    17. Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for letting me read this fantastic book. Marnie Rome and her partner, Noah Jake are visiting a women's refuge to interview a victim. They become caught up in a knife attack. A man has broken into the house and his wife has stabbed him in the chest. Slowly we are drawn into the world of domestic abuse, of it's survivors and it's perpetrators. Sometimes it is not clear who is innocent and who is guilty. As three of the residents of the women's refuge go missi [...]

    18. 5 StarsI was almost sceptical when I started this one--it felt like there was too much information given away too quickly, like the mystery was missing. And now, even having finished it, I feel like it wasn't the typical mystery. The reveal was closer to the 60% mark than the 90% mark, how I normally like it. But, surprisingly enough, I still loved this book. It was gripping, and the reveal was brilliant, even if a bit early. But the characters made it. It's rare that I connect to every single c [...]

    19. Absolutely superb. Twisty, heartfelt, exciting, worrying and confident. I love Sarah Hilary's voice. I've been fortunate enough to have read No Other Darkness already. Now I know that its brilliance was not a one-off.

    20. A very gritty and dark book with pacy chapters which I raced through. quite brutal and disturbing in places but personally I like that in a book! Great characters with interesting backgrounds and I look forward to reading the next book in this series.

    21. An excellent debut novel; edgy, fast-paced, chilling and well written. Realistic characters with heart and a multi layered plot. This is the classic page turner.

    22. I received a copy of this book from the publishers in exchange for an honest review.4.5 starsSome secrets keep you safe, others will destroy you…Detective Inspector Marnie Rome. Dependable; fierce; brilliant at her job; a rising star in the ranks. Everyone knows how Marnie fought back from the murder of her parents, but very few know what is going on below the surface. Because Marnie has secrets she won’t share with anyone.But then so does everyone. Certainly those in the women’s shelter M [...]

    23. I have been very lucky over the past few weeks to receive and review some fantastic books and my good luck is certainly continuing with this one. 'Devastating, brilliant and heralding an outstanding new talent in crime fiction, SOMEONE ELSE'S SKIN is the crime debut of the year' is what it says on the back, and after finishing the book I can safely agree and say that it is the crime debut of the year. that I've read so far!! I can't wait to see what Sarah brings us next.I knew I would love the b [...]

    24. Someone Else's Skin by Sarah Hilary is the first book in the Detective Inspector Marnie Rome series. Set five years in the past, the novel follows Marnie and her partner Detective Sergeant Noah Jake as they are investigating a crime at a shelter for women where they find a man stabbed and seriously injured. The man’s wife is one of the residents at the refuge. What initially appears to be a simple case turns out to be a complex one, and soon springs out of control.There are different threads t [...]

    25. Well I can see why Someone Else's Skin won the Theakstons Old Peculier crime novel of the year award. It's got everything you want in a crime novel: crime, multiple theories twists and a cracking police officer as the main character.We are introduced DI Marnie Rome and her team. Rome and one of her sergeants, Noah Jake arrive at a women's refuge to quiz a woman about the misdemeanours of her brothers only to find a man bleeding to death from a stab wound and his wife in a state. This chance visi [...]

    26. I have just finished reading this book, I won't say it is an easy read as some of the content is quite dark and disturbing, but it is most definitely a compelling read. It is a crime novel based around domestic violence, and follows the main character DI Marnie Rome as she investigates. There is enough twists, turns and unexpected outcomes to the plot which keep the reader fully engaged until the end is reached. I did think when I got to the end there were a few loose ends and questions left una [...]

    27. Only a couple of people in the group enjoyed this book and one member couldn't finish it. While a few of us agreed that it was well-written, we felt that there were just too many important issues touched on but not explored properly, and that this prevented us from getting involved with the characters so that we didn't really care what happened to them. We were baffled by the rave reviews which the book had received. A couple of members had read her second book and said that it was much better, [...]

    28. I would like to thank Sarah Hilary for writing a great starter to a series that I think will be marvelous. I found the characters rather weird at times. Not knowing where some of them are going. DI Marnie Rome is a woman on a mission, but her past keeps haunting her to the extent of her job.

    29. An outstanding novel. Sarah has really gripped the subject matter, and created an emotional, yet powerful crime story. Looking forward to No Other Darkness. Just 5 stars all the way through.
